I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with 6+ years of experience in both the psychiatric hospital and private practice settings. My masters degree is from University of South Carolina, and I am trained in psychotherapy modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I work primarily with adults and couples who present a wide range of concerns to include but are not limited to depression and anxiety, trauma, career, self-esteem, and relationship issues.
I believe therapy is a practice by which a person is able to elicit assistance, for any set of struggles, by an unbiased, non-judgmental, empowering professional in a safe environment. Each person being served is unique and thus so are their goals and interventions. Through active listening, I strive to support each client in identifying current areas of concern, collaborating with them to promote independence and self-reliance, and increasing their ability to overcome obstacles holding them back from being all they were designed to be.
Everyone can benefit from therapy, but it takes courage to take the first step. I applaud your decision to embark on this new journey in your life, and I would very much enjoy working with you to achieve your fullest potential!
- Stress, Anxiety

Renae is a great counselor, she has helped me a lot in only a month of time, she understands my needs and finds ways to help me. I would recommend her to anyone going into personal problem.
Rena was approachable and able to identify my problems. I feel comfortable talking to her and she was able to provide me with helpful suggestions and tips.
Renea was wise and insightful as I walked through some very big things. She listened thoroughly to all I said, responded with support and practical guidance, and I found that with her input positive change was able to be put in place easily and quickly. I am truly grateful.
Renea was super helpful with all my questions about how to help my friend through a difficult time. I want to thank her for that, unfortunately I had to discontinue sessions with her because money became an issue for me, but Renea is an excellent councillor and I would recommend her. She is patient, understanding and very helpful. Thanks so much, Renea.
Renea is a great listener and really makes you feel heard. She is goal/solution oriented and guides the sessions well, while always allowing you to have the reins to discuss whatever you need to. She is accessible and non-judgmental. She also has a calming presence. I recommend her.
As well as listening to my concerns and thoughts about my life, Renea has encouraged me in my plans to pursue my spirituality which I am very grateful for. I definitely look forward to continuing counseling
I’m extremely comfortable with Renae and have been so from the start. She is understanding, caring and gives me several options and lots of advice about my issues and struggles. I feel she has made a big difference to my mindset in the 2 weeks that we have been in contact. I feel she is guiding me in the right direction and I'm very happy with her.
